Even the simplest actions can become excruciatingly painful when dealing with hip discomfort.

Stability and mobility are provided by the hips when standing, walking and moving about. It’s possible that your joints will not perform properly because of an injury, arthritic change, or general soreness in the hips.

Additionally, hip pain may result in a lack of mobility and muscle weakness, as well the inability to bear weight and trouble rising from the chair.

When you lean over to get your shoes, you may feel hip pain. As you’re going up or down the stairs, you can be bothered the most if your hip hurts when you bend. The natural, effective pain management alternatives provided by the providers at Johnson Medical Center can help you move the way you want to, no matter how your hip pain manifests itself.

What causes hip pain?

  • Tendonitis is the most prevalent cause of acute hip discomfort.
  • Arthritis  can cause pain, stiff and tender joints, and difficulty walking.
  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease of the joints caused by the degradation of the cartilage that protects them with age.
  • Infectious arthritis is caused by the loss of cartilage in the joint as a result of an infection.
  • An attack on the joints by the body’s immune system results in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is rare compared to osteoarthritis, which affects far more people.
  • Bursitis of the trochanter
  • Trochanteric bursitis is another possibility for hip pain. When the bursa, a fluid-filled sac located near the hip joint, gets inflamed, this condition is known as bursitis.
  • Injuries to the hip, overuse of the joints, or poor posture are all potential causes of trochanteric bursitis.
  • Trauma to the hips Older folks and those with osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones owing to aging or other causes, are more likely to have hip fractures than younger people.

When should I seek emergency care?

If you have hip discomfort that persists for more than a few days, you should see your doctor right away. They can devise a strategy to alleviate your discomfort and treat your disease.

Hip discomfort that is accompanied by one or more of the following:

  • swelling
  • stenderness
  • soreness
  • warmth
  • redness
  • severe pain and swelling
  • deformity or severe bruising
  • symptoms in other parts of the body
  • symptoms that persist longer than a few days or get worse instead of better
  • other health conditions that could complicate healing
  • signs of infection, such as a fever

Septic arthritis, an infection of the joints, is a possible cause of these symptoms. Septic arthritis can lead to malformed joints and osteoarthritis if it is not managed.
